Hi,

I am doing what should be a simple animation of a flap of skin folding open to reveal bone. I have the skin flaps in the closed position as separate objects from the rest of the skin surface.

All I want to do is stick some bones in each of the two flaps and bend them back. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to get bones to work for me in LW 8

I have done similar things in the old days using LW 4, but I can't figure out how to do this in LW 8.

Can anyone point me to a SIMPLE tutorial that shows how to set up bones quickly in LW8. All the tuts that I have found are too much on the art and not enough on the nuts and bolts of setting up BONES!

Thanks.:help:

Look at some of Williams bones video tutorials:

Thanks for the referral Jeffry.

That's one of the best tutorials that I have seen. I could actually figure out how to do what I needed to!
